I need a fresh, cool, pure white cotton cardigan for summer! You know how air-conditioned buildings are! You dress for the ‘outside’ and you freeze your fanny off inside the buildings within the hour! Even our church…it is freezing winter, summer, spring, fall. That’s because the suits are in control of the temp unit!
So, here are some photos of the cardigan. I have knit 3 repeats for the BACK…and I am soooo pleased…I don’t have to use the graph anymore. The patter is an 8 row repeat…the wide cable is executed from every Right Side row, so 4 times within the 8 rows…and the ropey cable is only repeated once within the 8 row repeat. Sooo easy.
I think the pattern is turning out very well, and I am especially pleased that it IS NOT as fat and bulky looking as the photo in the magazine. My yarn is fun to knit with. It reached perfect gauge using size 7 needles. (20st in seed = 4") I will block it to ‘perfect’ and the ‘snug up’ the stitches.
I tried to attract some knitting buddies on our KAL…but everyone is busy with other projects. So, here is my WHATCHA KNITTING! If anyone has second thoughts…and wants to join me…we can do that over at my KHAKI CABLES thread in the KAL section. Let me know! I have loads of ‘tips’ for making cable projects a breeze.
